congressional leaders put much of their energy on the ongoing fiscal cliff negotiations. oklahoma representative tom cole who broke ranks with republicans by embracing president obama's plan to raise taxes on the wealthy stuck to his guns this morning. >> if we can give the american people an early christmas present, if they can listen to the debate instead of be worried that their own taxes are going to go up, i think that actually strengthens our hand. i haven't changed my mind. i'm not going to come out here and be disingenuous to people. i think it would be a step in the right direction. >> today john boehner expressed disappointment at where the negotiations stand. as our first read team points out, by siding with the white house tom cole may be helping boehner get the deal he wants. joining me now, political editor mark murray. why do you think tom cole has strengthened the speaker's position, negotiating position he goes in with? >> it has given john boehner some cover. you now have a conservativconse albeit establishment member of the house republican party who is essentially going to th

energy companies connected to the keystone pipeline, i mean what we're seeing is basically has all the hallmarks of a tough confirmation battle before her name has been put into nomination. she's effectively fighting this daily drip of revelations and research that's being dug up about her as she tries to get herself on an even keel not knowing whether the president will put her name in. it's a tough situation. >> when you look at this also, there are other things in play, they're thinking about recognizing the syrian opposition, bilateral talks to try to test the resolve of the ayatollah and see if they can negotiate something with iran. a lot of foreign impediments to this domestic agenda. >> no question. and i think hillary clinton is saying she's willing to stick around for a while longer just to see a successor confirmed. i wonder whether she's going to have to make good on that pledge. this hey have to drag out longer than the white house had planned. >> we have to leave it there. mark, margaret and chris, thanks so much. up next, a new strategy for the fight against autism.

to become a leader in global energy production, largely on the strength of the domestic natural gas production. many other countries with large sources of shale are well behind the u.s. in developing their supply because of regulations and a lack of infrastructure. the result could be that the united states and canada will remain leaders in natural gas development for the better part of the next decade. >>> "the washington post," terrorists plotted to unleash a wave of attacks in aumann, jordan. during the ensuing chaos raid the u.s. embassy. this from jourdardanian authori who foiled the plot arresting 11 people. the group planned to carry out attacks with help from al qaeda in iraq and weapons obtained from the civil war in syria. the plan shows al qaeda in iraq is on the rise and becoming a regional influence. >>> and from our parade of papers, in "the boston globe," starting next fall, ten school districts in five states across the country including boston will take part in an initiative to expand the school day, adding as much as 300 hours to the calendar. it's part of a three-
